suspect. poor libyan cooperation has hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it is also a matter of signaling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle, for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman, for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of a tragedy in benghazi, rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. madam secretary, as the new ranking member on the foreign affairs committee, let me say on behalf of the democratic members of this committee we would like to welcome you back to our committee, and we're glad you're feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee, and i want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no dou

this a national tragedy. >>> crime until california rose sharply last year. according to fbi statistics violent crime and property crime rose in 40 of california's largest cities. it's the largest crime instate they have seen in 20 years. crime rates vary grately. analysts say crime will likely increase again as prisons begin releasing inmates early. >>> construction on high speed rail is scheduled to begin in july but the state has not bought the land needed. the l.a. times reports officials have not acquired a single acre along the valley route. officials say they hope to begin making offers on land in the next several weeks. the cost of acquiring land could delay the project even further. prices have been rising that could raise property owners expectations far above what the state expects to pay. >>> a banner is being blamed for cutting power to thousands of people in downtown san francisco. the banner promoting hair cuts fell from a small plane around noon yesterday near fifth and brandon streets. it landed on power lines forcing crews to shut down the busy intersection. and it also knocke

it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this is the problem. it's too easy to kill. >> sean: and i know a lot about guns. let me he throw it to dennis kucinich instead. i'm glad you have a fundamental understanding of the second amendment more so than anybody else on your side so far that i've heard. i'm willing to have an honest discussion, a marksman since i was 11, 12 years old. i understand more than anything about gun safety. my guns are locked up, you can't get to them. we should have ownership in these countries. and we want to stop sandy hooks. don't we have to d
about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap
assume. but for the moment i know there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was told they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place. >> so we can get that behind us and find out what actually happened, that we can move on beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i think we do know what happened. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes that we all saw, those of us who went to it that made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel people to describe exactly what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we have a complete detailed description. >> we know what happened in been gauzy -- in benghazi because we have the reports. i am making sure that you work with me so we can find out what the administration knew. >> i do not want the american people left with this impression. would you say why we were misled. that implies an intent to mislead you. i think there was a description of a variants and talking points. i
from rota, spain were not sent to benghazi. as a result the f.b.i. could not enter the benghazi consulate for 24 days. that prevented them from doing crucial work on the ground in benghazi that would have helped them get to the bottom of who was responsible for this attack. >> reporter: what remaining questions do you have about the conclusions of the accountability review board, that is a committee headed by admiral mike mullen and former ambassador thomas pickering about mistakes made in benghazi. >> reporter: wong of the recommendone of the questions we have is they say they interviewed 100 witnesses and officials who were involved that night in the benghazi response, but in recent weeks we've spoken to two different members of the cia/grs team srels srels diplomatic service. they say they were not given access to all of those involved in the rescue that night. we also know from some of those who were on the ground in tripoli that night, some of those who were part of the rescue team, that they were told when they took off from trip low to benghazi that there would be, quote,
evidence yet to charge him. fbi director mueller was in libya last week, talking to the libyans about the ongoing investigation. it's very frustrating to the families and to many who watch this, these investigations, these international ones, are complicated and they do take time. but believe me, wolf, the bad guys in the region watch this. and the longer it goes without anybody being brought to justice, it's an indication to them that they have freedom of action, if you will, to target western facilities and westerners, and you see things like the attack on the algerian oil facility. >> so, fran, i want to ask you, when you were watching this testimony from secretary clinton, this very lengthy testimony, hitting on so many topics, what was your big impression? what was your big takeaway from what you heard from her today? >> you know, i put myself, kate, in the position of the families who lost, you know, ambassador stevens' family and the other families. and i think, more than anything, i was frustrated. you know, they were asking -- the members of congress were asking secretary cli
when you consider the federal, the local, various different agencies, fbi, justice department, et cetera, et cetera, it goes on and on and on and they're out in full force and last night several thousand national guardsmen were deployed and they'll have to filter through that. it's smaller than in years past and four years ago 1.82 million people here and this time around they've lowered the crowd estimates from originally expected from 6 to 800 down to 5 to 700,000, it's chilly, but folks are already in the lines and quite a stampede in the next three hours as we get ready for the president getting ready to take his inaugural, having been officially sworn in yesterday. >> brian: carl, how many red bulls so far. >> gretchen: oh, my gosh. >> reporter: haven't cracked them yet. a few days, but we'll have our share. >> brian:'s got six with him, who is he kidding? thanks so much. we had a problem, none of our guests could get through the security. and jim brown had a knee operation and couldn't get anywhere, you how is he going to get there. he walked out of his hotel and one cop to
've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their
interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the worst results. the second is on the kind of language used in the inquiries. the state department dropped the ball on libya. nobody asked a simple direct question, why did you deny repeated requests for more protection. by giving a tirade, they dilute the force of the simple question. the hardest and most useful question to answer is a simple direct one. host: thank you for calling. a couple of facebook comments. we have plenty more time for your postings and phone calls. we do want to spend a couple of minutes with eight journalists talking about another huge story. it started yesterday and will continue today wi
